England's answer to Crazy Horse Mountain

Northumberlandia is coming. "A mile away, I stand at the base of Northumberlandia’s head which, at this distance, looks just like a mountain of mud. We drive up hillside tracks to her hip and one of her breasts (the other one has yet to take shape) and then wind our way up to her face. Even now, as bulldozers comb her hair and steamrollers flatten her skin, it is easy to make out her feminine contours."

The Daily Mail will report on anything as long as it involves breasts.

‘Some people think it’s wrong to have a female figure, and others think she’s some sort of pagan symbol, even though Mother Earth is part of cultures all over the world.

Um, how is this a rebuttal?

‘You see, that’s her face, those are her breasts and that’s her arse,’ he explains. ‘Her hip, Lord Ridley,’ interjects an engineer diplomatically.

Magnificent.

And I'm making plans to visit some friends in Northumberland next summer. I might get to see this in progress.

At some point, we then have to ask ourselves of the earthen monuments around the world, how much of it was significant culturally, religiously, and how much of it was just a way to pretty up some waste product?

Except that you always end up taking out more than you can put back due to a phenomenon known as ‘bulkage’ ...

Hmmm, they discuss bulkage, but nobody spoke up about settling and sagging.

Wait till a few years have passed and a couple thousand tourists have climbed those breastworks.

I'm an older female, I know all about settling and sagging.

Maybe she could get together with this guy, and give him some relief. He's been waiting a long time and really, really needs it.
